AQUILA Max is a high force tensile/compression stage destined to perform thermomechanical test under diffraction goniometer, in Raman scpetrometry or under optical microscope.
It has been originally custom designed to be used with a Terahertz imaging device.
As other Aquila type devices, Aquila_max is very versatile.
